Rajon Rondo helped his aging teammates keep their season going Saturday night, finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in Game 7 against the 76ers to lead the Celtics to an 85-75 victory and into an Eastern Conference finals matchup with the Miami Heat.
Jrue Holiday scored 26 points, Lou Williams added 20 and the Philadelphia 76ers beat Chicago 109-92 on Tuesday night to even their first-round series in the Bulls’ first game since Derrick Rose’s season-ending knee injury.
When Sports Illustrated recently released their list of the Top 50 highest-earning American athletes, there was one Chicago player who cracked the list: Jake Peavy.
The Bulls and 76ers kept the first half close with the Bulls ahead just two points. Chicago struggled to score in the third period, allowing Philadelphia to make a strong lead and hand the Bulls their second loss in a row.
After a so-so start, the Bulls were given a shot of energy by the debut of Carlos Boozer. In Boozer’s first nine games as a Bull, the team is 7-2 and all seven wins came in a row.
